With a history of being nominated as one of Christchurch’s best small hostels from guests around the world, what more could you want in a hostel!
Still a little confused? Don’t worry, we have put together lots of information about whats on in Christchurch, how to get to and from the hostel, booking bus tours & hire cars, surf snow & weather reports as well as where to go and what to do in our awesome city.
I liked their own style of the hostel. It has a backyard, a TV room very nice, but the computer room with a small library was the best part in my opinion. The rooms are good too. Each bed has their own light attached to the wall and a pocket where you can save your belongings.
The staff are super helpful & amazing. The location is quite good, walking distance to city centre & many tourist attractions as well. Definitely recommend for solo travelers. Thanks.
Friendly people, meet backpackers from around the world and big kitchen area to cook and congregate, well kept, safe.
